In this case, #1 is bad. According to the latest World Economic Forum annual ranking of women's equality, Yemen has the worst record of any country in the world. It's actually not #1, but #128.
Also rounding out the bottom of the list:
-Saudi Arabia #124
The Report compares four areas of men's and women's status:
1. Economic participation and opportunity – outcomes on salaries, participation levels and access to high-skilled employment
2. Educational attainment – access to basic and higher level education
3. Political empowerment – representation in decision-making structures
4. Health and survival – life expectancy and sex ratio
You know you're in bad shape when even Saudi Arabia gets a better score than you do on women's rights.
